Subject: Beautiful engravings
Apart from the mystery of the emblems themselves, the borders in this edition of Alciatus are very well done, with amazing inventiveness and variety. To our modern sensibilities this would probably be considered "way overdone"... but as a product of its time - gorgeous.
